Editor’s Note: Occasionally I pull blogposts from the archives that resonate today. This one struck me as a particularly good example of how to use social media to benefit a hospital. Originally posted Sep 14, 2011.
This recognition is based on data reported about evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to improve care for certain conditions, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care and children’s asthma.

Teagan Stedman is an aspiring rock star who, at just 12 years old, has been on stage with members of such headliner bands as Guns and Roses, System of a Down, Limp Bizkit, Fistful of Mercy, and Rage Against the Machine. And, more importantly, he’s inspired those rock stars to rage and fundraise for pediatric cancer research.
Teagan founded Shred Kids Cancer, a nonprofit organization “made up of kids and started by a kid.” Inspired by his friend Alex Berson who was battling cancer, Teagan combined his passion for music and helping others.

Okay, full disclosure. I don’t like hospitals. I appreciate the kind people who work in hospitals and the healing that transpires there, but I still would rather not visit one. I’m with Chris Boyer on that. Dan Hinmon blogged about a conversation he had with Boyer. According to Hinmon, Boyer admitted that due to his type 1 diabetes, “my whole life is actively trying to stay out of a hospital.”
I’m not sure about Boyer, but what bothers me the most about hospitals is the scary beeping equipment, masked people, the potential of needles having to be placed in a vein, and the hallways where I always seem to run into a person in scrubs pushing a patient down the hall on a stretcher. (more…)
